Kitchen staff across North Lincolnshire are beaming with pride after their work earned them five-star hygiene ratings.
Catering services across Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, which manages hospitals in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole, have been inspected by an environmental health officer as part of their routine annual visit.
Graham Knight, deputy catering manager at Scunthorpe hospital, said: “This is the third year in a row that we have received a five-star rating.
“The catering staff have done exceptionally well again and I want to thank them for their continuous hard work. As a team a five-star rating is what we should be working towards on a daily basis so I hope this recognition again not only lets my staff know their efforts are noticed but helps to maintain the high standards within the kitchen.”
The environmental health officer assessed Scunthorpe’s main hospital kitchen, restaurant and ward kitchens – this year it was the kitchens on ward 16, 17 and in the clinical decision unit.
All those receiving the hygiene certificates said they were very proud to maintain the highest standards.
